Weaning food ingredients (flours of wheat, green gram, Bengal gram and groundnut) were precooked and roller dried, and the viscosity (apparent) of the reconstituted materials was measured independently by Brookfield viscometer to give the degree of gelatinization. Roasted ingredients gelatinized to a lesser extent than unroasted materials. There was considerable gelatinization when the composite blend was directly roller dried without cooking, but prior precooking (steaming/autoclaving/direct cooking/steam sparging) considerably reduced the degree of gelatinization. It is concluded that weaning foods prepared by direct roller drying had satisfactory processing characteristics.
